  1. Hello, This problem should be solved with the last beta version 4.3-4361 available from https://sourceforge.net/projects/skychart/files/0-beta/2021-06-14/ I say "should" because I cannot reproduce the problem on any of my computer, but the error message is clear enough so I am confident with the fix. Patrick
  2. Hi, Sorry for this error. From the error message it look like something do not work on your system when the program try to enumerate the installed printers. I can try to make a fix to bypass this error and disable the print function in this case. In the mean time you can try to bypass the error by adding some dummy printer in Windows ( a PDF to file for example), then uninstall CdC to cleanup the configuration and reinstall. Patrick
  3. I have good success by running PhotometricColorCalibration on each panel before to merge directly the colour images.
  4. Hi, This catalog index is not prefixed with the catalog name. So to search for DWB111 only type 111 in the search bar. Patrick
  5. Good! For other that can read this: after installing the catalogues files you need to open Setup/Catalog to check the ones you want, the Path box is no more in red colour and it work.
  6. To get all of this you have to download "DSO catalogs" from https://www.ap-i.net/skychart/en/download#additional_catalog
  7. With the last version you have a main menu shortcut: Update / Comet elements Patrick
  8. The right-left gradient can be a sign of non uniform light illumination of the t-shirt. The image histogram look good, no problem with that. Try to reduce the histogram range from 35000 to 38000 to better show the dust on the preview. The banding is probably because of colour reduction by VNC, try to open the image locally without using a remote session. Patrick
  9. I doubt someone ever try that, but in my opinion this is impossible because Wine implement user space library but none of the Windows kernel functionality required by a driver. If you really want to run on Linux you need to use INDI driver instead of ASCOM and use applications that support this drivers. If the application you want to use do not support INDI the best solution is to stay on Windows and look for a way to better manage the Windows update process so it not interfere with the observation.

  10. Yes, when the mount is parked it flash PARKED in the coordinates area to take your attention you must unpark. In Eqmod you can click the green + button on top until it show the message log. Maybe there is some information about why it cannot unpark.
  11. This is now implemented and will be available in the next version. I also make the "Manual focus aid" to work with sharpness measurement: https://www.ap-i.net/ccdciel/en/documentation/star_profile
  12. MPC comet file for every software was stuck at the June 15 version for a long time because of a problem with their server. During this time some wrong elements where posted for a short time. This is fixed since November 20, so everyone must be sure to reload a new comet file in every software. For CdC I have switched the default comet download to http://astro.vanbuitenen.nl/ , Gideon take the work to update it's file during the MPC down time and it has the advantage to include better magnitude from current observation.
  13. Yes, for the last libraw.so.19 there is incompatibility between 19.2 and 19.5, and with the last snapshot with .CR3 support that is also named libraw 19. Patrick
  14. Hi Radek, The problem with LibRaw is the API interface change continually, so a program compiled with one version do not work on another system with another version of LibRaw. My interface library with LibRaw is in this case. For Ubuntu I have setup a PPA at https://launchpad.net/~pch/+archive/ubuntu/ppa-skychart but this is not compatible with Raspbian, this is why you need to compile this library. The instruction in the readme must now work without problem, but tell me if you think something need clarification: https://github.com/pchev/libpasastro/blob/master/README.md Patrick
